That's TBA, but stage 1 will not be as expensive as some might think.

Lol sorry, been busy for you guys

A ballpark* not set in stone, is $6k or under. - again, ballpark and not solid.

Engine management is done via a standalone computer that runs in tandem with the OEM ECU, it has the ability to control far more then we ever need for this car.. Meth injection, errors, timing, fueling, valve lift, up to 16 injectors - it is a little overkill, but its a great piece of hardware and holds the software to run us cleanly and safely.

So its not a flash, its a resellable kit.

And yes, it's already happening, tuning runs next week and other goodies. Today i hope to get you guys a shot of the final parts with the cold air intake installed and our branded Bracket, Black V3-Si trim blower (just got it back from being anodized)


**Note**

The blower color for the kits will be an option of polished and satin, black is just something i personally wanted in the car.

Gavin Gavin Gavin! Yes lol.

Can you give me any info about what this overkill management is called? I want to start planning this with my installer informally. It'll take me a while to bank 6k, but I can get most of the install done free, so this is actually a strong possibility of something I may really be able to do. If this mystery engine management comes with a basemap for a stock 325i and your stage 1 kit, we wouldn't even NEED a tune other than to compensate for specific mods and more power...

Things are looking up for this car, I just have a bank or 2 to rob on the way home.

Lol, the computer is proprietary - its not something you can just go buy, and we preload the tuning to the computer - so there is no need to have it tuned after the fact. Just install the kit, allow for a few miles of break in time (200+) - and go.

Ohh I see. I am used to Kpro/Flashpro on the hondas...we had LOTS of tuning options, but of course had to pay for a pro tune or really know your shit.

Less money spent and who gives a damn about a few more horse (~5 maybe?!) on a custom tune over a basemap

well done!

Come on Gavin, you're so full of it. Anybody can draw up a bracket for the blower and have it machined out of a block of aluminum...

What, you don't have a price for the kit yet?? Or dyno charts?? Please, then it's never going to happen. Stop lying to every N52 owner and trying to steal their money..

Next thing you know you're going to setup a special group buy with discount pricing better than you can find anywhere else. Yea, then you're definitely going to take all the money and run. The header group buy was just a ploy to fool people into thinking they could give you money for a product you design, and create, and actually receive it!

I talked it over with my car itself, and it says it'll consider letting you pay me the $6k to install it. You can send payment now. I'll be expecting the blower in the mail by tomorrow

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

As much as I've supported this project and Gavin's work, I think I've pretty much decided to step up to a 335 when I return from Air Force training. Going to want 4 doors in the not too distant future for a DD so I figure its a good opportunity to upgrade at the same time.

I'm excited to see numbers on this though. Good stuff Gavin.
